River tunnel, 'grand' station take shape
Work on Thailand's first rail tunnel under the Chao Phraya River is expected to finish by Dec 5 this year and will connect with the Sanam Chai station train to be developed into a "palace hall" on the extended Blue Line rail route.
More than 75% of construction on the east side, also known as Eastbound, of the Blue Line is now complete. Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith says he is impressed with progress, but also looking forward to seeing the elegantly decorated Sanam Chai station, which will connect to Itsaraphap station on the west side of the river via a 200-metre tunnel.
